They offer superficial treatments for my people’s mortal wound.
They give assurances of peace when there is no peace.
Are they ashamed of these disgusting actions? Not at all—they don’t even know how to blush. -Jeremiah 8:11-12a
Have you ever noticed that the world wants to fix you in five easy steps? Ten minutes a day will revolutionize your life! Drink this, eat that! Sadly we do this with advice, coaching and counseling, as well don’t we? Always looking at the behavior and never really dealing with the root problem. The world offer’s superficial treatment for the Church’s mortal wounds…especially when it comes to the wounds of sexual sin.
In show 82 we ask the question: What does it look like to a mighty man of valor? What does it take to be a regular guy that has great courage in the face of great danger? Now, does this mean there are not brief moments of fear and doubt in your life? I would submit to you that a mighty man of valor is someone who moves toward those moments of fear and doubt and embraces them….instead of letting it paralyze and silence them.
